Texas Instruments Incorporated (TI), a global semiconductor design and manufacturing company that develops analog ICs and embedded processors, plans to build a new 110,000 – 125,000 square foot facility at 301 South Williams Blvd. here in Tucson. The total capital investment is projected at $29,808,000.
The new facility will allow Texas Instruments to increase employment in the areas of electrical engineering, financial managers, electrical and electronics technicians, general administration, operations managers and financial specialists. The company currently has 313 employees in Tucson and is expected to add at least 35 more in the next five years. The economic impact of the new TI investment and job growth is expected to be nearly $68 million over the next five years.
Texas Instruments has been operating in Tucson since it acquired Burr Brown Research Corporation in September 2000.
Key project partners include the State of Arizona, Arizona Commerce Authority, Pima County, City of Tucson and Sun Corridor Inc.
“Texas Instruments’ economic impact on Tucson continues to grow with this expansion,” said Arizona Governor Doug Ducey. “The expansion will result in high-paying jobs that are a huge win for Southern Arizona, and just the latest in series of positive developments for our state’s thriving economy.”
